About 5 years ago the NH legislature decided that the problem wasn't the knife but the individual with the knife and eliminated all knife laws. I bought a Kershaw auto knife and to the best of my knowledge it has not slipped out of the house and stabbed anyone while I was asleep or otherwise unaware.

Interesting thing is that they are legally carried by a one armed person in Michigan.

Michigan Knife Laws | KnifeUp

750.226a. Pocket knife opened by mechanical device; unlawful sale or possession; persons exempted. Sec. 226a. Any person who shall sell or offer to sell, or any person who shall have in his possession any knife having the appearance of a pocket knife, the blade or blades of which can be opened by the flick of a button, pressure on a handle or other mechanical contrivance shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by imprisonment in the county jail for not to exceed 1 year or by a fine of not to exceed $300.00, or both. The provisions of this section shall not apply to any one-armed person carrying a knife on his person in connection with his living requirements.

Don't want to digress, but recently I acquired a Bench Made Balisong. I always wanted one and this one just was at the right place, at the right price, at the right time.

My son-in-law, who is somewhat knowledgeable about knives and likes to collect them said that a Balisong knife is illegal in many states. I never heard of that. It is not an assisted opening or automatic knife, and as I have found out it takes a lot of practice to open it with the flicking of the wrist moves. Anyone know if this is true?

Mine is a very well made knife and I think its slim profile makes it a nice tool to slip into some of the smaller utility pockets that you find on the cargo pants and shorts I am usually wearing when I go out fishing or hunting. I just don't want to get into a discussion about the legality of such a knife with a LEO on a future outing.

automatic knives are not illegal in VA,

but ninja stars are.

go figure.

some knife magazines have a list of states where they cannot sell certain items to.

I have a Schrade SCHOTF6. its a out the front automatic knife.

It has a safety and a glass breaker on the other end, though I don't carry it.

I just like knives.

I also have a couple Kershaw spring assist knives. when they first came out with the design.

I got a Havalon razor knife for Christmas, gonna use it to process wild game. when it gets dull I can just replace the razor.

Was surprised to see ones like the Sog Trident Tanto legal for sale in crappy Ma. Bought my Sog a few years back and yeah the assisted opening is awesome. Not bad for $59 and the blade which is Aus-8 steel does take a good edge.

I love my Kershaw assist/open. Kinda like a switchblade in sheep's clothing. Wondering if anyone has had any LEO encounters with assisted opening knives as they could definitely be.mistaken for a switchblade.

I'm a big fan of my Kershaw Skyline- it is an unassisted flipper, very simple and lightweight, don't have to worry about laws when I cross state lines and such.

In Kentucky, our CCDW permit covers all deadly weapons- handguns, switchblades, brass knuckles, ninja stars, etc. The ninja stars are explicitly listed as a deadly weapon, which is kind of funny.

Here is a picture of my Benchmade 7505-132 dual action automatic. It can be opened normally using the thumbstud or can be opened automatically by sliding a panel on the bolster to the side.
Also, spring assisted knives are not considered 'automatics'. Automatics are button or lever operated openers. And BTW, they are legally sold here in FL. Carrying them on your person however, gets more complicated.

I never could quite understand the point in those stars unless you wanted to really pi$$ someone off.

Mine arrived a few days ago. In my area of CA they're legal to own and carry concealed as long as the blade is 2" and under. Kinda funny how states that have very strict gun laws, have relaxed knife laws and states that have relaxed gun laws, have strict knife laws. Here's a short vid I made of my new knife's blade firing. I plan on making another video on the knife for anyone who cares to hear a review from me about it:

When I lived in NY most web sites said that they would not ship certain knives there. When I moved to Florida 12 years ago it was like night and day regarding knives and firearms. BTW, I think that knife technology has improved so much over the years, that an unassisted flipper design opens as fast as any switchblade.
